Honestly, you don’t need your faucet running nearly as often as you think you do. Yes, when washing hands and dishes to scrub and rinse, but while lathering up your face and hands for washing, preparing your toothbrush with toothpaste and while actually brushing your teeth — you do not need the water running.

While easy and obvious, you’d be surprised to know many people don’t recycle. Collect your glass, plastic, aluminum and paper waste and do your best to recycle responsibly.
